Bead Curtains – Sreeti Mondol

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Memories of a Butterfly is a brand of hand crafted bead curtains conceptualised by my dear friend Sreeti Mondol.

Sreeti works out of a little outhouse in Bangalore, sourcing her materials from different parts of India and employs poor local women to string the glass beads, thus giving them the support to earn for a better livelihood.

What I absolutely love about her bead curtains is the way the glass beads play with light, creating almost magical colours and textures in the room. They act as privacy screens without disconnecting an area from the rest of the house, office, bar or restaurant
